When the family of his French girlfriend land in his apartment for a visit, a New Yorker discovers a new side of his partner. Although the original is more subtle and far funnier, this film is entirely watchable. This was my first time seeing Chris Rock in a movie. Not only was I relieved to discover that he can speak without the shrill voice he uses on stage (which is awfully hard on my ears), I really enjoyed his performance.
